Application Data

Application Data
The LC Preset Counter provides a means of automatically delivering a precise, predetermined quantity of product by
controlling the operation of a mechanically linked hydraulically balanced valve. For maximum life, the preset should be
operated at or under a maximum of 120 rpm of the right-hand wheel (Example: 1200 gpm in whole gallons, 120 gpm
in 1/10 gallons).
Presets provide valve control through a mechanical linkage. Presets are available in a choice of models to meet
requirements for single-stage or two-stage operation, dwell flow periods, and units of measure.
The preset counter is available geared in either a 1:1 or 10:1 ratio. The 1:1 ratio is used when the right-hand wheel
of the counter and the right-hand wheel of the preset rotate in unison, with both wheels indicating the same unit of
measure. When the right-hand wheel of the counter and preset record whole units, the preset capacity is 9,999. The
10:1 ratio is used when the right-hand wheel of the counter is to indicate tenths and the right-hand wheel of the preset
is to indicate whole units (the right-hand wheel of the counter turns ten revolutions for each revolution of the right-
hand wheel of the preset).
The preset is available in a two-stage model to prevent hydraulic shock in the piping system and meter, by gradually
reducing and then stopping flow. For installations where hydraulic shock is not a potential problem, single-stage
presets are available.
OPERATING NOTE: Hydraulic Shock Prevention
Hydraulic shock occurs when a volume (mass) of liquid is moving through a pipeline at some flow rate, and a valve is suddenly closed.
When the flow is so decreased or stopped, the entire mass of the liquid in the piping system acts as a battering ram, causing a shock
effect within the meter. The greater the mass, length of line, and/or velocity, the greater the hydraulic shock. Since the preset/batching
valve is usually located downstream of the meter, the meter case, packing gland, and meter internal members receive the full impact
of such hydraulic shock, which can cause ruptures, leaks, or other damage. To overcome this hazard, a hydraulically balanced, slow-
closing valve should be used in conjunction with a two-stage preset, adjusted for sufficient dwell to decelerate the liquid flow gradually.

Preset Models
The preset models available provide dwell periods suitable to meet all conditions. The models available with a

Mounting, Operation, and Start-up

Mounting Instructions
To mount the 4-digit preset to the meter:
1. To mount the Preset Counter, it is necessary to remove
the housing (1). This is done by removing the four corner
screws (2) and lifting the housing off the base plate.
2. The Preset Counter housing (1) is then mounted to
the mechanical register (3) with four hex head screws
(04378). To replace the preset base plate (41708) with
the attached internals, turn the assembly upside down
and gently insert it in the housing. Make sure the slotted
shaft (4) of the gear plate is engaged properly with
the preset drive shaft (40310). If engagement is not
complete, rotate the gear plate drive shaft at the bottom
of the preset, to aid in seating. Replace the four screws of
the seal wire and screws assembly (40633).
3. Position the trip ring on the base plate taking care
that movement of the sear (40375) and latch (40356)
assemblies are not hampered.
4. To place the entire assembly head on the mounting
flange of the meter, turn right side up and position on the
counter end cover making sure that the preset counter
drive shaft meshes with the slot in the adjuster assembly.
Check trip ring for freedom of movement and secure
using the four bolts provided with the meter assembly.

Operation and Initial Start-Up


Single-Stage Operation
By pressing the four black buttons located on the front
of the preset, the operator selects the quantity to be
delivered. Each button controls the number on the
wheel above it. There is no need to set the numbers in
sequence. Any number can be set first, second, third or
fourth.

Two-Stage Operation
Preset operation is basically the same during single-
stage or two-stage closure. The quantity desired is set
by the operator and the valve is opened to the full flow
position. At a predetermined dwell period the preset
allows the valve to close partially, slowing the flow to
approximately 10-20% of full flow. When the desired
quantity has been delivered, the preset releases the
valve allowing it to close, completing the delivery.

Adjustments

Linkage Adjustment
There are two main reasons for making linkage
adjustments:

1. Field modification of flow direction through the meter.


2. To overcome hydraulic shock.

Hydraulic shock occurs when a volume (mass) of liquid


is moving through a pipe line and a valve is suddenly
closed. When the flow is abruptly stopped, the entire
mass of liquid in the piping system acts as a battering
ram, causing a shock effect within the meter. The greater
the mass, length of line and/or velocity, the greater the
hydraulic shock.
Since the valve of the meter is usually located at the
meter outlet, the meter packing gland and the meter
internal components receive the full impact of such
hydraulic shock. To prevent this hazard, a two-stage,
slow closure valve should be used with the meter. If the
linkage adjustment is not properly set, hydraulic shock
can occur.
To adjust the linkage on standard left-to-right flow meter
for a lower flow (shorten linkage), turning the nuts in a
clockwise direction will shorten the stroke of the valve
reducing the flow rate in dwell.
If the linkage is too short, the full open notch position
may not be reached and the result would be a shut off
at dwell rather than at zero. If the linkage is too long, the
valve may shut off at dwell never reaching full flow. On
those occasions where mass, velocity, etc., are of such
magnitude as to preclude the elimination of hydraulic

shock. If hydraulic shock occurs, adjustment of the

with a longer dwell period should be used.
If proper adjustment of the preset valve linkage does not
result in elimination of hydraulic shock, the viscosity of
the product may not be as originally specified, requiring
change of the valve dashpot washer.

segments for controlling single-stage valves and four
available notch segments for controlling two-stage

Before any shutoff adjustments are made, at least two or flow rates exist, a two-stage preset should be specified.
(2) test runs should be completed. On all presets, make
test runs using a value large enough to permit the meter
to reach its normal flow rate.

If after making at least two (2) test runs an error in alignment is indicated, correct the error as follows:

1. Note the position of the zero on the right-hand wheel in relation to the zeros on the other wheels. Determine whether the zero is
stopping too early or too late and how much misalignment occurs.
2. Remove the eight (8) screws (A).
3. Remove the bezel (B).

misalignment.

Maintenance

Replacing the Preset Counter


To replace the preset counter:
1. Disconnect the valve linkage (1) from the operating lever
(2).
2. Remove the four screws (3) which secure both preset
counter (4) and direct reading counter (5) to the meter.
3. Lift both counters off meter and remove the trip ring (6).
4. With the counter assembly turned upside down, remove
the four cap screws (7) which secure the cover to the
preset counter.
5. Lift the preset counter internals out of the preset cover
(4).
6. Install the new preset unit. The longer shaft (3) should
extend through the preset. Make sure the slotted shaft in
the gear plate is engaged properly with the preset drive
shaft (40310). If engagement is not complete, rotate the
gear plate drive shaft at the bottom of the preset to aid in
seating.
7. Secure the preset to its cover with the four screws (7).
Install the trip ring (6). Note the Off Set in the ring should
be toward the base, seating trip ring.
8. To replace the register stack on meter, turn the assembly
right-side up and position on the counter end cover
making sure that the preset counter drive shaft meshes
with the slot in the adjuster assembly. Check the trip ring
for freedom of movement and secure using the four bolts
provided with the meter assembly.

Environmental Protection
If a meter is exposed to a difficult environment, the unit
should be covered. Refer to the Illustrated Parts

to prevent seepage into the preset and counter
housings.
After wash down, carefully dry the register stack to
prevent possible damage.
To prevent dust collection inside the housing, insert
a hose for low pressure instrument air purge.

Lubrication
No field lubrication is necessary.

Occasionally it may be necessary to replace certain


parts of the preset. All of these repairs require removal
of the four screws (04584) and the seal wire and screws
